The Bandwagon

January 1942
New Republic;1/5/42, Vol. 106 Issue 1, p23
Presents quotes of some celebrities and information from several periodicals. Statement of author John W. Vandercook that it is inconceivable that any enemy which attempted to approach the United States from the Orient could hope to escape the vigilance of a Hawaiian aerial patrol. Statement of a Berlin military spokesman that the absolute superiority of the Germans in the east is clearly shown by the fact that the Russians could in no way prevent the Germans from drawing their troops backward; Information that the German retreats, with the attendant disorganization, probably are giving the partisans greater opportunities to seize German arms and use them effectively.
